Social media´s impact on mental health of adolescence : A literature overview (English)
Abstract [sv]

Under de senaste åren har den psykiska ohälsan ökat bland ungdomar. En möjlig orsak till detta kan vara hur ungdomar påverkas av sociala medieanvändning.  För att sjuksköterskan skall kunna arbeta på ett hälsofrämjande och förebyggande sätt krävs kunskap om samtliga tänkbara områden som kan komma att påverka ungdomars psykiska hälsa. Resultatet litteraturöversikten förmedlar består av tio vetenskapliga artiklar som behandlar ungdomars psykiska hälsa relaterat till användning av sociala medier. Resultatet visar att sociala medier kan både främja och motverka psykisk hälsa hos ungdomar. Vilka hälsoföljder användandet av sociala medier kunde få för ungdomar visade sig bero på ungdomens tidigare psykiska hälsa, personlighetsdrag och framförallt hur mycket tid som spenderades. Kunskap som denna kan vara användbar för allmänsjuksköterskan i mötet med ungdomar i vården för att uppmärksamma riskbeteenden och informera om hälsoföljder som en överkonsumtion av sociala medier kan leda till.

Abstract [en]

Background: The increasing prevalence of mental illness among adolescents has become a burden to health care. Simultaneously the use of social media has become pervasive among adolescents. How does the increased use of social media affect the mental health among adolescents?      Aim: The aim of this study is to investigate how the use of social media effects adolescents´ mental health. Method: Both qualitative and quantitative data was collected and used in a literature overview with the analysis method of Friberg through a descriptive summary of the area. Ten articles was used. Results: The use of social media can both promote and counteract the mental health among adolescents. Thus it can create a sense of context and connection it can also contribute to stress, impaired sleep quality, development of eating disorders and also to a lower selfesteem.   Previously mental illness was shown to be fortified by the use of social media.    Conclusion: The prevalence of mental illness was associated with a high usage of social media.
